**** Recommended **** One of my sisters (I have three) is fond of that old saying – friends may come and go, but sisters are forever. Colette Freedman’s insightful play, “Sister Cities”, reaffirms that adage. Although sisters may quarrel – and frequently go for the jugular (because we know exactly who/what/when/where it is) – in the end, that shared history means everything. At times, I could see and hear my own sisters, which is what made “Sister Cities” feel so real. I give it 4 Spotlights.
